Head2Head & Early Team News - Forest (H)

Last updated : 19 January 2006 By Deano
History hasn't been too kind to the Millers on the 26 occasons the teams have met in league and cup. Rotherham have picked up six victories whilst Forest have 15 wins to their tally. They also ran out 2-0 victors back in September at the City Ground, Jack Lester's penalty and Kris Commons' freak goal from the wing sealing the points.

Forest are much improved since then and have captured the likes of Nathan Tyson and more recently Grant Holt to add to their strike force. The Millers have picked up just a point in their last three outings and desperately need three points out of Saturday's match in their battle to avoid the drop.

New Boy
Boss Alan Knill has sealed the loan signing of Sheffield United midfielder Stephen Quinn for a month and he arrives to join up with team mate Jonathan Forte. Tomorrow could also see a trio of Blades from S2 at Millmoor as Knill is poised to clinch a deal for versatile forward Paul Shaw until the end of the season. If the deal goes through, all three should figure in Knill's plans but the formation is anyone's guess. Phil Gilchrist may return to the side but Michael Keane continues to serve his suspension and Jon Otsemobor left the club for Crewe this week.

Gary Megson will be hoping to turn around his side's dismal form on the road which has seen just one away success at Gillingham so far this campaign. Julian Bennett starts a three game ban and could be replaced by John Thompson or John Curtis at full back. Gareth Taylor penned a deal with Crewe earlier in the week and fellow forward Eugene Dadi has joined rivals Notts County on loan for the rest of the season.

MillersMad prediction: we need the three points, we are staying positive! we'll shade it 2-1
